state public health cuts off rural counties from vaccine access

Deschutes County, Oregon

Oregon Health Authority has taken vaccine doses from rural counties and re-assigned them to the Portland metro area.

On just 2-3 days per week does the County have sufficient doses to administer vaccinations. For the coming week, Deschutes County is allocated 25% fewer doses than the week before.

Multnomah County, Oregon

Multnomah County is home to Portland. The low point at right is due to an ice storm shutting everything down. Otherwise, a rising trend of increasing vaccinations.

Public health thinks rural areas are non-essential, non-elite, worthless – and then wonders why people hate public health officials?

Surprisingly, this scandal is ignored by the media.
